Organize this: 3 ways to use Ikea’s square cubes

Clean lines. Versatile. Affordable. Yes! Yes! Yes! Ikea has an array of options when it comes to shelving units. We decided to keep it simple and put the Bitrade shelving unit to use 3 different ways! I love how this item lends itself to any room and can solve any storage problem. We used it as a bookshelf for the living room, a bar cart to entertain, and to hold accessories and clothes in the closet. And when your style changes or you just get bored (this usually happens first!), you can re-assign the shelving unit to another room or use it to display something new!

I am just swooning over every storage option–would it be too much to keep all three??

Put in some baskets and store the kids’ toys in the playroom, use it in the entryway and give everyone a cubby, or put it in the bathroom to hold the necessities. The possibilities are endless with this shelving unit and it is a great addition to any space! What would you use an Ikea shelving unit for?
